the mind clinic

The Mind Clinic is a radio programme focused on mental health and hosted on Silverbird Rhythm 94.7FM Abuja. It allowed Nigerians to listen in, call and speak about issues, directly and indirectly, relating to their mental health. With Hosts and guest speakers driving the conversations, each programme of the Mind Clinic was captivating, informative and educative.
